Prevent: Train the Trainer

Prevent: Train the Trainer


Since its introduction to the FE and Skills Sector, the Prevent Duty has presented many challenges to providers. Staff have engaged in online training and the mandatory Working to Raise Awareness of Prevent training (WRAP), but very few providers have extended their CPD offer effectively to embed Prevent in the classroom. This has resulted in Ofsted inspection reports commenting on staffs’ lack of skills and confidence which impacts on learners understanding of key issues including the risks associated with extremism, radicalisation and how to keep themselves safe.

FEA are offering a unique practical training opportunity to build the skills and confidence of a selected group of internal staff. After undertaking this practical  ‘train the trainer’ programme, the new ‘trainers’ will have the knowledge, skills and confidence to successfully deliver internal training, and provide a sustainable model of staff development which puts learners’ understanding and development at the core. 

While the programme and training focusses on the Prevent Duty, there are links to the skill development of learners, developing learners’ understanding of fundamental British Values, equality and diversity, safeguarding and wider tutorial programmes.

This programme is delivered by Jackie Rossa who has extensive knowledge of the Prevent Duty and has developed an outstanding reputation as a trainer.


The learning outcomes will be personalised based on each provider’s individual needs and expectations. Overall the programme aims to develop practical strategies to:

  • Enable staff to debate, discuss and explore key issues related to the implementation of Prevent, including the promotion of fundamental British values
  • Develop staff skills so that they are vigilant, confident, competent, and able to encourage open discussion with learners
  • Provide staff with tools, strategies and techniques to effectively challenge prejudiced behaviour, stereotypes and the use of derogatory language
  • Enable learners to recognise the signs of radicalisation, and protect themselves and others from radicalisation and extremism
  • Encourage, debate and effectively challenge learners’ view in relation to Prevent
  • Develop learners’ resilience, and critical thinking skills, enabling them to challenge extremism
  • Develop learners’ understanding of British Values, and how they link to the Prevent agenda
  • Develop learners ability to discuss and debate issues in a considered way, showing respect for others’ ideas and points of view.

Providers will also receive example lesson plans, resources, activities, and examples of how key topics can be effectively developed in tutorial and enrichment programmes.
